More Act changes ? PROVINCE TO REQUIRE E-V CHARGE STATIONS AS OF RIGHT ? 2017/06/13 00:58

CBC Toronto June 12/17
" Ontario Condo Act a roadblock for electric vehicle owners. Province looking for input into making condos plug-in friendly"

2 - Was Queens Park aware how imminent are its anecdotally latest revised dates of implementing changes in progress for years ?

But of course , maybe they would have had to re-legislate anyway . . . eg how can mere Regs override Provincial condo law as to insurance deductible by-laws, a problem the Province may not have grasped fully until recently despite the warnings including at Legislative Hearings ?

Revised dates for Ontario condo law changes :
